Robert Breedon

Robert Breedon heads the health and care sector team in the UK and Europe. He is an experienced commercial lawyer with more than 25 years' experience in a range of industries and sectors, including health and social care and logistics and supply chain management.

Robert has particular experience of large commercial projects and outsourcing contracts, most notably in the healthcare sector. He works with clients in both the public and private sectors to structure, draft and negotiate contracts for the delivery of clinical and related services and in establishing joint ventures and alliances between providers and purchasers.

Having worked for over five years in the UK's Department of Health, Robert has a unique insight into the workings of the NHS. Robert helps clients to deliver commercial solutions and to achieve the desired transformational changes in service delivery. He is experienced in advising on collaborative arrangements for health and social care commissioners (clinical commissioning groups and local authorities) and in developing innovative delivery models for healthcare providers. He assists clients in understanding any associated governance and regulatory issues.

Robert helps clients to run procurements for various services and/or to bid successfully for various tenders, building on his extensive experience in private practice and in industry as an in-house lawyer. He is recognised by Legal 500 (2015) as 'an expert in public sector procurement regulations'.

Robert enjoys removing the mystique from legal issues, helping clients to understand the key issues as well as the implications of commercial transactions and helping them to deliver the outcomes they want.

Robert speaks regularly on contractual options for the delivery of healthcare services and has a particular interest in contractual structures for the delivery of integrated health and social care, including models based on new payment structures such as outcome-based contracts.

Experience

Robert was the lead adviser for the Government's Independent Sector Treatment Centre programme (Phase 2), a £3 billion programme aimed at reducing NHS waiting times and increasing patient choice.

He is advising a number of NHS Commissioners in relation to contractual arrangements for the delivery of integrated health and social care and associated governance and regulatory issues.

Robert advises a number of clients in the social care and care home sector, on service contracts and regulatory issues.

Robert acts for a leading logistics and supply chain management business and his experience includes negotiating the UK's largest food distribution contract.
